Cold and Darkness, where is your strenght?
Ice and Snow, where is your dominion?
When the sun of eternal life rises over the barren wilderness
You flee like scared sparrows
You melt and pour out of time
Sitting there in the snow I felt the cold conquer me
Alone and freezing away from the illusion of warmth
Which lived so strongly within me
Should I close my eyes for the last time?
Should I give up my breath which makes the light of my life?
Uncertainty doesn't kill
Its sword only cuts the thorns in its way
Many days came and went
Nights streamed rapidly by
Watching the shadows dance in the past
Hearing the flow of rain in the quiet loneliness
The constant quest of man for what is right
The hope of life shining brightest when the night is as darkest?
The mystery smiles at me
Time, coiled up, is held in Thy hand
Oh, God, Thy way is mine
And so, the feeling was reborn
Like the sweet perfume of the deep forest
Like the expectancy of the beast of prey
After its long winter sleep
It was a particular day
Unlike too many others
When I plucked up courage
And rose from my prison bed.
Oh, there was heard a familiar sound
The signal of the end of the night
Indicating a recollection was born
Springtime approaching in all its glorious beauty
Stealthily, silently like a whisper
I was given the grace once again to behold dawn
The Gift, it was true
I was there at the horizon of life, at the mirror of the soul
The gate to the feast of light
All concepts have lost their meaning
Few understand what beauty means
Few understand its might
The Gift, a melody born in Heaven
An intimation of everlasting constancy
It is dancing in the room
Musical tones fill the silence
Was it but a dream?
No, nothing in the realm of dreams can be so wonderful
I am thirsting for more
The sweetness of your wine is a remedy
Yes, the sweetness of the wine is beauty fulfilled
Tones saying more than a thousand words
Who can tell their meaning?
